adapt their own habits to the changes which a change of the animals destined for their food may  require. Ample arrangements have also been made for the support of schools; in some instances  council houses and churches are to be erected, dwellings constructed for the chiefs, and mills for  common use. Funds have been set apart for the maintenance of the poor; the most necessary  mechanical arts have been introduced, and blacksmiths, gunsmiths, wheelwrights, millwrights,  etc., are supported among them. Steel and iron, and sometimes salt, are purchased for them, and  plows and other farming utensils, domestic animals, looms, spinning wheels, cards, etc., are

Such are the arrangements for the physical comfort and for the moral improvement of the Indians.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
